Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only thirty caps !!! Tried it again, but didn't get the effect needed, cause I ran out! So purchased more to understand its benefits, not a good value but a good product. Swanson should work on offering more per package. 60 caps fit in that bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUSCLE UP Good old Octacosanol. I first became aware of and used Octacosanol about four decades ago when I worked out a lot and all the time. My workout friends and I added Octacosanol to our nutritional regimen, along with lots of protein, Amino Acids, Vitamin E, et al. Recently I saw this Maximum-Strength 100% Natural Octacosanol among Swanson's vast inventory. Even though I only work out a relatively small amount these days, I still always want maximum results for my maximum efforts. I take two of these tiny little capsules daily, and I am very happy with my results. I really feel that this Octacosanol would be of benefit to everyone of all ages and regardless of activities. It has been my lifelong experience that a comprehensive nutritional program brings the best benefits out of any and all workout regimens. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! This supplement aids me greatly in increasing my endurance and I believe helps my grip strength as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Having ordered less potency octacosanol for years I did not think a higher potency would make a difference. It really has though for me. Worth a try if you see a need for increased endurance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good to go Wish they would package it in 100's to get a better price. The bottle is only about half full and is a waste of space. Also need to list it in mg's not mcg's I guess that makes it look like it's more? Good product tho...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supplements Supplements have been my dietary mainstay for many years and have found Swanson's catalog the best descriptive source for my wants. I read about foods to eat that are a good probable source of nutrition and realized many moons ago that good supplements were vis-a-vis a positive source.
